Video Games Can Hurt Schoolwork

A story on ABC News reports on a new study of gaming, saying: "Young boys who receive their first video game system don't progress as quickly in school as boys who don't own such devices," quoting study co-author Robert Weis saying: "The average reading and writing scores of the young gamers don't go down, but they don't improve either." If this all seems obvious, Weiss thinks drawing obvious conclusions is meaningful, as they say: "While the conclusion that owning a video game increases the time kids spend on such game might seem obvious, Weis, a clinical psychologist, said it was important to scientifically prove that conventional wisdom was correct. The study was published last week in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science."

An attention whore looking for more grant money to fund further studies of the "obvious". The funny thing, though, is that parents who pay attention to their children and make sure those children have completed all of their homework before being allowed to play video games have children that progress just as well as non-gaming children. Since things like that won't get grant money from any "blame video games" groups.
